Home And Community
Putnam County residents are invited to join their school corporation communities in a competition to save energy and money in their homes.
Energy Challenge Homes & Community Awards will be earned by the school corporations with the highest rates of Home Energy Savings Pledges within their communities. Putnam RISE aims to secure 2,011 Energy Savings Pledges from our county’s residents by December 1.
Each school corporation community has its own Energy Savings Pledge goal based on the total number of students in the corporation. The school corporation communities demonstrating the greatest progress toward meeting or exceeding their goals by Dec. 1 will earn $5,000 (1st place) and $2,500 (2nd place) cash awards. The third and fourth place school corporations can also secure $1,250 awards for meeting their goals.
The North Putnam community, including the Bainbridge Elementary students shown above, met its initial goal of 542 household Energy Savings Pledge and is currently in first place.
